“Easter Worshippers” Is Fine

Two hundred people were killed in Sri Lanka, many of them worshipping in churches for Easter. Several American politicians, including Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, referred to them as “Easter worshippers” and a vocal group of Christians on social media are demanding the dead be called Christians.

Maybe exercise some grace here.

A lot of people, including a few of the politicians who tweeted, only show up to church on Easter Sunday. And while the phrase “Easter worshipper” is not common, it is also not unheard of. Ironically, had Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama not tweeted to express concern for the dead and condemn the attacks, a great many of the people outraged now would have been outraged by their silence.

This is a silly controversy. Conservatives exhaust themselves pointing out how frequently progressives get outraged over minor things on social media and now are doing it themselves. The only people who care already noticed and do not need others to scream about it. It makes conservative complaints about social justice warrior insanity seem cheap.

The fight over terminology used by a handful of politicians is minor compared to terrorists murdering hundreds worshipping the risen Lord.

One parting thought: is it possible all these Democrats have one shared social media team. I do have to admit it is weird that multiple Democrat politicians are all out with “Easter worshippers” at roughly the same time. I presume there’s a PR team involved and all these accounts are handled by that same team.
